Scientology Training Routine for Lying a.k.a. TR-L
With Scientologists dominating the Clearwater, Florida Downtown Development Board, it's fair, at this point, to describe the Board as a Scientology front group, if not an overt Scientology advocacy group.
But not completely overt - there's still an element of disguise.
Recently, in response to Mark Bunker, at a recent hearing, Downtown Development Board member, and OT 8, Ray Cassano, stated, "I am a Scientologist, also a Christian. Most Scientologists are Christians."
Not to be left out, our own Alanzo just today chimed in, asserting that "Many Scientologists... are actually Christians..."
From the 1952 book 'Scientology 8-8008', one of Scientology's "basic books':
"The concept of infinite mind is not new, but it has always been assigned to another beingness than self. The preclear will be found to be intensely aberrated who has sworn allegiance to some infinite beingness... Infinite mind is individualistic... It was beyond the power and the grasp of the intellect applying itself to the field of philosophy, to conceive a multiplicity of infinite minds..."
Aleister Crowley, who Hubbard discussed with respect and affection during his Philadelphia Doctorate Course lectures of 1952, also was a proponent of the idea of a multiplicity of Infinite Minds.
Last time I looked, both the book 'Scientology 8-8008' and the 'PDC' lectures are readily available to all Scientologists. They are not confidential.
Scientology has tested the big lie that Scientology is friendly towards Christianity and, over the years, some Scientologists have deceived others by spreading vague generalities about how Scientology is compatible with Christianity, etc.; and a handy way for a Scientologist to shut down any "wog" criticism has always been to present the outrageous whopper of "I am a Christian."
But this is new.
With the assertion that "most" or "many Scientologists are Christians," we are in new territory.
TR-L has gone from being a (covert) Intelligence action to being an (in your face) PR action.
